"Very pure, spicy, vibrant fruit marks this delicious '96 Nuits, with good concentration and intensity of flavor yet massive tannins. The fruit hangs in on the finish."
Allen Meadows - Burghound:
"A combination of both primary and secondary fruit nose cut with nuances of earth, underbrush and a lovely hint of anise leads to surprisingly robust flavors underpinned by still firm if no longer prominent tannins and a solid acid backbone. There is good length and this is really quite stylish if not necessarily particularly dense and I particularly like the precision. A very solid effort that is very Nuits in character and while it is approaching its peak, I would personally opt for another 1 to 3 years of cellar time. Tasted twice with consistent notes."
